BERBICE once again showed their dominance in Women’s cricket in Guyana by registering three comprehensive victories during this year’s GCB Women’s Inter-County T20 tournament played at GCC, Bourda.

After a comfortable 9-wicket victory against Demerara in the morning game on Thursday, March 30, Berbice made light work of Essequibo in their second-round match. Essequibo were restricted to 56-8 off their allotted 20 overs. Annalissa D’Aguiar was the only batter to show resistance top scoring with 16. Berbice took just 9.1 overs to get to their target of 57, losing four wickets in the process. West Indies player Shabiki Gajnabi top scored with 19. D’Aguiar returned with the ball to take 3-7 off three overs which earned her the player of the match award.

With Demerara and Essequibo both losing to Berbice and their head-to-head encounter on Thursday resulting in shared points because of a wash-out, it was Demerara who qualified for the final against Berbice with a superior net-run rate to Essequibo.
